Park of the Month, July 2017

Belair National Park

24 July 2017

A park that’s familiar to so many with endless things to discover and new places to explore.

Kangaroos and Emus stroll across paths whilst colourful orchids and fungi are a few of the magical things to adore.

The Park has many stories to tell with ancient trees, re scars and Aboriginal tree carvings giving a window into the past.

Let the story continue as your new adventures unfold and together, explore its natural beauty and make memories that will last.


Whole generations of Adelaide families have visited – and continue to visit – Belair National Park to walk, ride bikes or horses, have picnics or barbecues, use the sporting facilities and to simply explore the natural world. There are woodlands, lakes, creeks and geological formations to discover, trails to suit all levels of tness, recreational facilities available for hire, and open spaces for sport or family celebrations.

We have worked with the Rangers to get their insider knowledge about where to go and what to do the Park across all four seasons. Our 40 things to do in Belair National Park brochure (print here) will have you: strolling along Lorikeet Loop; marvelling at Amphitheatre Rock; koala spotting; searching for tadpoles; quietly observing grazing kangaroos; bird watching at Playford Lake; and many more things to discover and places to explore!
